We’ve cut the NCAA Tournament field in half. The round of 32 gets underway on Saturday, giving us eight more games to take in.
A trio of SEC teams will get the day rolling, each trying to punch their ticket to the Sweet 16. LSU will take on Maryland, Kentucky will face Wofford, while Florida will take on Michigan. Kentucky will once again be without star forward PJ Washington, who is nursing a foot injury.
Other games of interest include Ja Morant and Murray State looking to pull off another upset against Florida State. Auburn will look to stay hot a knock off Kansas later tonight.
The game to watch today for Tennessee fans will be Purdue vs. Villanova — the winner of that game gets the winner of Tennessee-Iowa tomorrow. Interestingly enough, the Vols played both of those teams in the Battle 4 Atlantis last season.
You can find the full schedule listed below.
